RAY COLLINS' HOT CLUB (DE)
Since 2000 the ten piece band Ray Collins´ HOT-CLUB is part of the international swing and vintage rhythm and blues scene. Playing their own mixture of boogie, swing and rock´n´roll they released 7 albums, appeared in 3 movies and toured in more than 30 countries from Moscow to Las Vegas.
Their trademark is their wild stage act. But it is their own compositions which brought them international and long lasting recognition. With songs like Out Of My Mind, Barefoot or Bye Bye Paris they created their own classics. On their latest album, Cutting Out they went one step further and recorded as a 40 piece big band including string section.
Now they are back in the ten piece line up, back on the road and ready to rock.
HILLBILLY MOON EXPLOSION (CH/UK)
Three years after their last album 'Damn Right Honey' THE HILLBILLY MOON EXPLOSION release their new album 'WITH MONSTERS AND GODS' on 02.09.2016. Three years they played in the streets of Europe and three years the new songs were written.
Of course, there is also an honored star, Mark 'Sparky' Phillips, Frontman of Demented Are Go! who sang in the duet with Emanuela, the Nancy Sinatra & Lee Hazelwood classics 'Jackson', as well as he did the backing vocals at 'Black Ghost'.
Yes! This is the same Sparky, who already supports the band at 'My Love For Evermore', which has reached over 7 million YouTube clicks to date.
Absolutely unique is 'Call Me', the Blondie cover of 1980, the first single from the new album.
THE HILLBILLY MOON EXPLOSION is a loud pan-European rock'n'roll band with a blood-rushing character and a fast-growing fan base. Led by the Swiss-Italian Emanuela Hutter, the English singer & slap bassist Oliver Baroni, and skillfully supported by the English guitarist Duncan James and the new entry of the band drummer Sylvain Petite.
From the rockabilly scene of their electoral home Zurich, they rejected the invitation to participate in the 'European Song Contest' for Switzerland. THE HILLBILLY MOON EXPLOSION were known for their hit 'Johnny Are You Gay?' And preferred to tour through Europe, appear on the TV and support Jeff Beck on his European tour.
'WITH MONSTERS AND GODS' is the fourth studio album of the band; A cocktail of loud rockabilly, pure rock'n'roll, tattooed rhythm & blues & schizophrenic 50 'blues.
Fortunately, finally, sophisticated music culture from Switzerland and not just DJ Bobo. Sometimes Zurich is not only petulous & expensive, but also a small New Orleans! Keep your mouth open and listen. We advise with 'WITH MONSTERS
AND GODS ': Let's buy some booze, go downtown and get tattoos. . .
